Description

Enjoy the ultimate hideaway at this traditional Welsh cottage on the Isle of Anglesey. Set in an idyllic location, just 200 yards from the water's edge of Cymyran Straits, which separates Anglesey from Ynys Cybi (Holy Island).

Should you wish to venture further, Anglesey also has a great range of attractions and activities within a short drive.

The property's brilliantly unique setting is reached over a rugged track and then across the occasionally tidal foreshore.
